The flowers that bloom in the spring (tra la). Roses smell wonderful, but daffodils? Do they have a scent? Hyacinth is powerful … but columbine? It looks aromatic, but …
Inside, there’s coffee, always coffee. The smells of anything baking. Bread, cookies, brownies. It makes you hungry. When that grubby mutt pups up into your lap, now that’s an earthy aroma. Makes you … yeah … want to call the groomer. Immediately. “Do you have room for an emergency? Because I have two of them …”
Over the years, I have become almost unconscious of some of the smells around me, especially the dogs. I can still smell food. I know when the pizza’s done by the smell. I know when that turmeric shrimp and rice is ready to eat. My nose knows.
Has anyone been on a New York city subway recently? Now that is an aroma you can get your teeth into!
